The main aim of this work is the computer aided design of the new orbital forging process. The finite element model was developed and used in research on possibility of modification of the classical orbital forging technology based on the Marciniak press to obtain more effective process. Obtained numerical results from simulations of the new orbital process are compared with the experimental analysis, performed on the orbital press with the developed device. However, due to the novelty of the developed approach the investigation on direction of material flow during deformation is of particular interest in this work. Direction of material flow and strain path change effect due to incremental character of deformation is analyzed. Obtained results confirm good predictive capability of the FE model and are the basis for the comparison of the two processes and discussion on the effectiveness of the modified incremental forming process.
